Making a claim in the EU

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

If a company’s dispute is against a person or business in a different EU member state, the company will have to find out which member states’ courts has the jurisdiction to deal with the case.  Jurisdiction in cross border cases is governed by EU Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters, otherwise known as the Brussels Regulation.

Normally the usual place of residence of the defendant is the country with jurisdiction to process the case.  People who normally reside in a particular member state must, whatever their nationality, be sued in the courts of that country. For example, the French vendor of a motorbike can be sued in England if that is where the motorbike was due to be delivered. However, there are exceptions to this so that some claims can be brought in another member state other than where the defendant resides.  These exceptions mainly occur in matters relating to a contractual obligation; actions for damages; matters relating to maintenance; matters relating to consumer contracts, insurance and to individual contracts of employment; matters relating to patents and trademarks; and matters relating to ownership or tenancy of immovable property.
